Devotion for The Week of November 12th-18th 2012

 

Good morning friends. This is Wednesday Nov. 14th, 2012. It's another beautiful day in Conway, SC and the county of Horry that is. Right on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. WOW! To me, the most beautiful place in the world to live. We have pretty clean air and the weather, for the most part, is wonderful.

 

The # 2 vacation spot in the USA. The Blue Ridge mountains are relatively close to us as well as some large cities. We now have a wide variety of people living here. Wow, and as Pastor Dr. Jerry Howell says many times, "I believe I'll say that backwards - Wow".

When I was a young girl growing up here in Conway, we didn't have to close our windows for security. We didn't even have locks on them. There wasn't any need to ever lock the doors during the daytime. My little brother and I stayed home by ourselves while our Mother went off to work at AVX in Myrtle Beach, SC.

She worked the 2nd and 3rd shifts. See, my Dad was the town drunk and very abusive to my Mother. She was strong and worked very hard to provide for her 2 babies that was left at home with her after the other 6 children had left. Daddy left, also. Times were hard and Mama was especially hard on me. She was SO strict. I now know she wanted only the best things in life for me.

Devotion For The Week of October 22nd-28th, 2012

Today is Tuesday, October 23, 2012.  Another beautiful day in Conway, SC.  This weather is just perfect - need a light jacket in the mornings and short sleeves the rest of the day.  Plenty of sunshine for walks on the beach, for golfers on the links, or for Mom and kids to enjoy a great day at the park.  God is so very good to us!  We live in the greatest place on Planet Earth, Horry County, SC specifically Conway, SC - the South, the bible belt on the east coast of the USA.
    
Now, enough of all that bragging on my home state and county.  Good Morning.  God is good and He is everywhere.  That is one of the wonderful attributes I love most about Him.  He is not limited to space like we are!  He is omnipresent.  He's on time all the time.
 
Last week we spoke of the Lord my Rock, Yahweh, Tsur.  In the Old Testament, God's proper name is Yahweh (Jehovah).  This is His covenant name to His people, Israel.  His most sacred name must not be taken in vain.

Let's speak today of the redemptive names of God, Yahweh - Yireh and His promises.  Jehovah-Jireh, the God Who provides.  Let's look at the fulfillment of His promise in Genesis 22:1-14 concerning Abraham and Isaac.  This is the first act of worship mentioned in the bible.  It is also the first use of the word "love" in scripture (Gen. 22:2).

Genesis 22:1-14 KJV
